Clay Play web Family Clay Play Afternoons

Come and join us for our family pottery sessions on Wednesday afternoons throughout the summer. You will learn to throw a pot on the wheel, slab-build or coil, and if you sign up for a full three week course you can embark on an exciting ongoing project of your own choosing.

Family workshops are suitable for kids, Mums and Dads, older siblings, and Gran and Grandad too! A great way to spend time together while learning something new, getting a bit messy, and having a lot of fun.

The workshops are £37.50 per person if signing up for 3 weeks, or £15 per person for one week only, and includes all materials. Items will be fired and ready to collect 2-3 weeks from completion.

Workshops commence on the 30th of July at 3pm.

Just give us a call on 01273 628952 or email us to book your place and pay your fee.  Places are limited.
